Feel free to discuss your thoughts, please. This thread wasn't directed at the members of this site, who are mostly mature, strong men, both in mind and body. However, I will stand by my original statement. There are exceptions, and plenty of small dudes are real men. But the 19 year old who thinks his ribs are a 6 pack, degrades women, and spits on authority is a punk and nothing more.
There are many things I agree w/ 110% in this thread. But, when there is even a hint that someone (me) is less of a man than someone 100# heavier or twice, or even more, as strong.... I will speak up.
If someone who doesn't know me thinks they are more of a man than me because they are bigger well, they are entitled to their opinion. However, that very statement tells me alot about them.
